"Winning has nothing to do with racing. Most days don't have races anyway. Winning is about struggle and effort and optimism, and never, ever, ever giving up."- Amby Burfoot, The Runner's Guide to the Meaning of Life
Today I was a winner! My intent was five miles and that is what I did :-) The first three miles were very tough and painful. But I pushed through and mile number four and five there was no more pain. Thank God!
I kept telling myself today, "you are not in a race, it is ok to stop and walk it off" so I'd just walked in circles between each mile and lifted my leg. But I ran every mile.
I wonder if this has to do with Saturdays race? It was all pavement. I run on loose gravel, sand, dirt, and grass. Oh well, just push through!!
5 Miles Ran :-)
